You Had Me At “Subatomic Particle Jewelry”



[View All on One Page]

My knowledge of subatomic particles is… let’s just say “lacking.” So I’ll let creator Virtox explain the science behind their magnificent line of 3D printed jewelry:

Ever since I first learned about subatomic particles and their spiral movements in magnetic fields, I could not help but be inspired. The different charges, masses and speeds determine the trajectories and create these astounding images in bubble chambers. With the arrival of accessible 3d printing, I got to work to capture this beauty in jewelry. I wrote a piece of software that would trace possible (and impossible) orbits and trajectories in 3 dimensions.

After partnering with MixeeLabs, Quark Jewelry was born. You can check out more of the (gorgeous) pieces behind the cut.

Science, man. Science.

    Okay, this was neat enough I’ll have to go look at the original site and maybe buy something. The necklaces are awesome!

    I was thinking they look a little cheap, but 3D printed = awesome!

    The material is actually really interesting. It’s 3D printed Nylon, super light, pretty flexible too. Best part? Made with lasers. Pew pew!
